I'm using a Time Warner remote as a universal for my TV but when I go to change channels, it just lights up the CBL button and doesn't change the channel. Can I program it to my TV or will it


Hi, you need to de-activate the "programming channel control lock" option. You can see instructions in the manual for the remote. They are as follows:

  1. On the remote control, press CBL once; It will blink once, Press and hold SETUP until the CBL key blinks twice.
  2. Enter 9 7 3. The CBL key will blink twice.
  3. Press CH- once. The CBL key will blink four times.
    Now the remote control will provide TV and VCR channel-control capabilities while in the TV mode.
for any other information with programming this remote:

1. the newstar universal tv remote contrlol i bought, cannot change the channel, although i can use the adding/minus the volume. 2. in as much as wanted to use also for te change of channel, i follow...


Unfortunately, universal remotes often do not work as well as the packaging says.... but all hope is not lost.
First, try ALL the programming codes listed for your brand of TV. Often, one will work. Be sure to follow the programming instructions, which usually have you trying the POWER ON/OFF button first after reprogramming.
If that fails, most universal remotes have a "scan" feature that, when you start it, will cycle through every code it has stored. During a "scan" you keep the remote pointed at the set and when the set powers off, you hit the ENTER key (or the key specified in the remote manual) to stop the scan and test the functioning of your remote (channel +/-, VOL +/-, etc.)- it takes a long time and can get frustrating, but keep trying and you should find a set of codes that will operate your TV correctly.
If you have no luck, do not give up hope completely- I would next recommend that you purchase a Philips brand universal remote- this is the brand that I have found to be most flexible.

Looking for At&t uverse remote control code for 24inch Dynex tv


you dont need the code for real all you have to do is follow the steps necessary to enter a code but instead of entering code press the channel up button repeatedly until it changes the channel when it does press enter/ok or similar button and you have a nice working remote for your tv without the code!!!! Hope this works out for you, it has for me everytime i get a universal remote its just a lot faster to just keep pressing the channel up button instead of unfolding the paper finding codes and what knot. GOOD LUCK!!!!

Same problem as above.Disney p1310ATV lost the remote. No Phone # in orginial manual.Television system NTSC (American TV Standard) I have tried other universal remotes also I have a Sony RM-V210 universal...


there may be a problem with the tvs remote sensor. most universal remotes you dont even have to enter any codes you just have to follow the same steps to enter the code but instead of entering a code all you have to do is press the channel up button after following all other steps, just keep pressing up until it turns the channel on the tv then press enter or similar button after it changes the channel and this should lock in the code without entering a specific code.And if all other remotes only half the buttons work on if it happens with every universal remotes then it probably a problem with the remote sensor or the tv . Good luck too ya!!!

There is no way to accsess the tv video without the remote i have a G E universal remote and need the correct code for this model


most universal remotes let you search through the code base by simply following the steps to enter a code then just keep pressing the channel up button instead of entering the code, just keep hitting the channel up button until it changes the channel on the tv. 9 out of 10 times this will work! GOOD LUCK!!

My brighthouse remote can turn my tv on and off but not change channels


The remotes have several device keys at the top of the remote. They have abbreviations like "VCR", "DVD", "TV", "CBL". By default some actions are locked into a specific key. By default, the volume buttons will always control the TV volume and the channel buttons will always change channels on a digital box.
If you have a digital box, and the channels wont change, the default locks might have been removed. Consult the instruction manual that came with the remote and re-lock the buttons to the correct device key. Otherwise you will need to press the "tv" button when trying to change volume and the "cbl" button when trying to change channels.
If you do NOT have a cable box and are just simply trying to use the universal remote as a primary remote, you will need to unlock the global channel lock. Consult the manual for the remote or check online for the remote guide. The Company which makes the remotes is called Universal Electronics and you can find digital copies of their manuals on the Brighthouse Websites.

Lost remote


Actually I found there are several remotes that work. The first is the Bright House networks remote, the larger one...The second is The Universal Remove Control by GE. It's numbered 24944 in the upper right hand corner of the paper. It's sold for $4.94 at Walmart in the checkout area...

I found that manually inputting the code for the remote doesn't work. You have to do a search for the code using their method...on this particular remote from Walmart, its hold the setup button down until it lights up, then press and depress the TV button...then press channel up until the TV changes channels. It worked once, but I just kept going, the 2nd time it worked, then I pressed the mute button [to keep the code] and it works...you simply press input and it switches to AV.

I have to admit I thought it was ridiculous that you can't use this particular TV without the remote, but I was happy that I went through the effort the first time to keep trying remotes...

This is the first kids TV that I have found that you can't find the AV channel by going through the channels AND you can't hook up two items to the AV outlets because you have to disconnect the back or front ones, to use the other....PLUS it only comes with a dual AV outlet, instead of the 3 plugs [red, white, yellow] only has the white and yellow.

A disappointing TV to say the least.

Tv is locked


I had the exact problem...tried a number of things that did not work. My dog "ate" my original remote. After reading your solution I took the universal remote that was programmed to work with the tv and tried holding down each button for a few seconds hoping that one would work like the display button on the original remote. It worked. I have a GE universal remote and the menu/info button worked for me. Again, you need to hold it in for a couple of seconds. Thanks for the help and I hope my added solution helps other people. Claudia in Minnesota
